Cottages offer visitors more freedom than a hotel and present a home away from home experience so that they are free to explore Cornwall as they please. Many Cottages in this totally unspoilt area look the same as when they were built but you will find that all Portloe holiday cottages and farm barn conversations are completely refurbished inside.

Spring Vacation

5 of 5
Excellent property, well maintained and equipped. Stunning location, although one needs to be reasonably fit to get the most from the immediate area. On a personal note - we failed to take toiletries such as soap, shower gel etc, as one gets used to having these provided in Hotel stays. As we had not done self catering for awhile I did not think of this. Maybe a reminder with the fnal briefing might be a good idea. If we visit Cornwall again we would certainly be booking this property; even the neighbours were friendly.

Cosy and a good base

4 of 5
Property is cosy and efficient, nicely laid out and decorated. The location of property was quiet and the property owners were charming and helpful. Eden, Fowey and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are very interesting and within easy reach and there is a good walk along the West side of the bay along the cliff in Mevagissey.
